If you jump into the main VoIP Forum ... »VOIP Tech Chat
... you can catch up on the popular and far more satisfying providers ... with good rates, excellent features, fine support, and consistent service.
First off, a check of »/gbu
will give you an overview of the levels of satisfaction among the BBR Members for each of the providers.
Let's provide each of your VoIP options with a label, so others can might in and make further suggestions within each category.
• Option A:
If you have small to moderate monthly usage (less than 1000 or so USA/Canada incoming and outgoing monthly minutes) and are OK with providing your own ATA (device), you should look at Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) providers. Such providers charge a minimal monthly fee in addition to per minute charges for incoming and outgoing minutes: Voip.ms, CallCentric, Anveo, Future Nine, CallWithUs, etc.
• Option B:
If you have small to moderate usage (less than 1000 or so incoming and outgoing monthly minutes) but prefer that the VoIP provider supplies you with a pre-set ATA (device), you should look at lower priced vendors: Future Nine, NetTalk, Ooma.
• Option C:
If you have moderate to heavy monthly usage and are OK with providing your own ATA (device), you should look at providers who have fixed monthly rate plans with "unlimited" (to a point) calling: Voip.ms, CallCentric.
• Option D:
If you have moderate to heavy monthly usage but prefer that the VoIP supplies with a pre-set ATA (device) and are OK with fixed monthly rate plans with "unlimited" (to a point) calling, you should look at VOIPo, PhonePower, VoicePulse
• Option E:
If you are more interested in making international calls, you should do a BBR Forums "Search" using parameters such as "calls to India", "international VoIP calling", etc. ... or start a new thread in the main VoIP Forum asking others to suggest providers that suit your calling needs.
Overall, as most of us have seen following the collapse of SunRocket and the mystical rise of TB from the ashes, most all of the other VoIP providers (except MagicJack) have far surpassed TB in just about every aspect of VoIP service: pricing, features, support, reliability, etc. And when a BBR member has problems with or questions about any of the other "popular" providers, scores of responses pour out of the ether.I may have unintentionally left out some suitable providers' names ... or service plans that I was not aware of ... but I would hope that others would jump in with their comments --- even though this is, after all, the rarely viewed TB sub-Forum. If nobody shows up, start a thread here: »VOIP Tech Chat.
